3h30 to enjoy the charm of a well-preserved medieval town and its UNESCO vineyard


Saint-Emilion is one of the most beautiful medieval town of France: its cobbled stones streets, its limestone houses, its former monasteries will seduce you as much as the richness of its 1st World Heritage Vineyards listed by UNESCO in 1999!
After a walking tour into the village, let me bring you into the middle of the vines, to find out everything you want to know about St Emilion 's wines.
During the tour, we will stop in a family owned "château" where the owners will be pleased to share you their passion, explain you their daily work to produce a "Grand Cru". Do not worry, a tasting will be included before walking back towards the village of St Emilion.

Starting with an hour walking tour of the medieval town, the underground monuments can be included, on request and depending on available access times.
